NEW 
JOYSTICKS! 



If you and your TRS-80 have longed for a fast-paced arcade-type game that is 
truly a challenge, then SUPER NOVA is what you've been waiting for. In this 
two player machine-language game, large asteroids float ominously around the 
screen. Suddenly your ship appears and you must destroy the asteroids before 
they destroy you! (But watch out because big asteroids break apart into little 
ones.) The controls that your ship will respond to are thrust, rotate, hyperspace, 
and fire. All right! You've done it! You've cleared away all the asteroids! But what 
is that saucer with the laser doing? Quick! You must destroy him fast because that 
guy's accurate! As reviewed in May 1981 Byte magazine. 

The sound of the klaxon is calling you! Cruel and crafty invaders have been 
spotted in battle formation warping toward Earth at an incredible speed. Suddenly, 
your ship materializes just below the huge flock of invaders. Quickly and skillfully 
you shift right and left as you carefully fire your lasers at them. But watch out! A 
few are breaking out of the convoy and flying straight at you! As the whine of their 
engines gets louder, you place your finger on the fire button knowing all too well 
that this shot must connect — or your mission will be permanently over! With 
sound effects! 

Your TRS-80 screen has been transformed into a maze-like playfield for this 
game. As your ship appears on the bottom of the screen, eight alien ramships 
appear on the top. All of them are traveling at flank speed directly at you! Quickly 
and boldly you move toward them and fire missiles to destroy them. But the more 
aliens you destroy, the faster the remaining ones become. If you get too good you 
must endure the wrath of the keeper of the mazefield: the menacing "Flagship". 
You must destroy him fast because, as you will find out, that guy's accurate! With 
sound effects! 

With thousands of stars whizzing by you, your SPACE DESTROYER ship 
comes out of hyperspace directly under a convoy of aliens. Almost effortlessly, 
you skillfully destroy every last one. But before you can congratulate yourself, 
another set appears. These seem to be slightly more intelligent than the first set. 
Quickly you eliminate all of them, too. But your fuel supply is rapidly diminishing. 
You must still destroy two more sets before you can dock with your space station. 
All right! The space station is now on your scanners! Oh no! Intruders have 
overtaken the station! You must skillfully fire your neutron lasers to eliminate the 
intruders from the station before your engines run out of fuel and explode! With 
sound! 

As you look down on your space viewer you can see the stranded astronauts 
that are crying out for you to rescue them. But first you must maneuver your 
shuttle down through the asteroids & meteors before you can reach them. Great! 
You've got one! But now can you get back to the space station to save your fellow 
shipmate or will you crash and kill both of you? You can fire your lasers to destroy 
the asteroids, but watch out, because there could be an alien FLAGSHIP lurking 
behind! Includes sound effects! 

For S39.95 it's now possible to have the famous ATARI joystick interfaced 
with your Model 1 . All of our tapes are now completely compatible with the 
joystick. Packaged with complete instructions, you can even use it with your own 
programs! If your old tapes do not say "Joystick Version" on them and you wish 
to exchange them for new Joystick versions, enclose S2 and your old tape. (Call 
or write for info on Mod 3 joysticks.

The second Big Bang has occurred and the galaxy is full of stray asteroids 
and meteors. As you look through your space port you see a belt of asteroids 
drifting across the screen blocking your path to the safety of the space station 
above. But be careful because meteor showers, exploding suns and invading 
aliens may strike your ship and send it hurtling back to ground level. How many 
times can you and your opponent maneuver through those obstacles before time

ISEew Disk Versions Available! 

Due to popular demand, we are now offering special 32K disk versions of our games. These 
tapes come with a regular 16K Level 2 version on one side and a version on the other side 
especially written to be dumped onto your TRSDOS or NEWDOS diskette, Packaged with complete 
instructions on how to accomplish the transfer, these programs allow the high scores that you 
achieve during play to be permanently saved to disk. Every time you start up the game the previous 
high scores will appear on the screen. If you wish to clear the high scores and start over, simply 
execute the Dos command "KILL" to eliminate the file that stores the high scores. These versions 
are a must for any serious game player with a disk drive! 

Model 3 Versions Wow Available! 

Radio Shack's new Model 3 computer opens up new realms of quality for arcade-style game 
playing at home on a TRS-80. Model 3 virtually eliminates about 90% of the "thrash" on the video 
screen (those little annoying black streaks). This allows for super crisp displays that make 
playing our games even more fun. Our regular Level 2 versions, however, will not work normally on a 
Model 3. Our new tapes include both a regular Model 1, Level 2 version on one side and a 1500 baud
